Breasts embody femininity, motherhood and sexuality. The biological function of the breast is to produce milk in order to nourish a newborn. Sensitive to hormones, the breast swells during the female cycle, changes during pregnancy, menopause, during hormonal imbalances… changes that raise many questions. Here’s everything you need to know about the most famous breast shapes.

The size and shape of the female breast depends on the thickness of the fat layer and the elasticity of the Cooper’s ligaments. The concept of a beautiful bust has changed at different historical times. There are 4 main types of mammary gland and many other “unofficial” classifications that describe its shape based on similarity to objects. In cosmetic surgery, “ideal” bust parameters have been developed to meet the needs of modern fashion trends. “The size depends on the amount of fat in the breast. A woman’s breasts are rarely the same size. Usually one breast is slightly larger or smaller, higher or lower than the other, or not quite the same shape,” the Canadian Cancer Society advises.

Round or “bulging” or “apple-shaped” breasts

No need to go through four paths to explain it, the round chest is made up of breasts as full at the top as at the bottom. Although some owe it to surgery, others just get that kind of boobs naturally.

Asymmetrical breasts

There are almost no women in the world who have “completely symmetrical” breasts as evidenced by Dr. Tiffanny Jones, gynecologist and fertility specialist. This is a particularly common feature! This “irregularity” which concerns almost all the breasts in the world, is seen by a difference in size, volume, shape or position between the two breasts. According to a study of the natural breast asymmetry of 87 women, it was found using 3-dimensional images that the left breast is on average larger than the right.

The best way to support this type of breasts evenly is to opt for bras with removable pads to standardize the appearance of the breasts.

The “East-West” version breasts, also called opposite breasts

The line of the breast between the base and the bottom is slightly sloping and makes the breasts come out to the side, thus leaving a space between them. Here, the chest takes its ease and lets the nipples point outwards, in the opposite direction.

Athletic breasts

Athletic breasts have more to do with the size and tone of the pectoral muscles, which are found under the breasts,” as Dr. Cindy Duke, virologist and fertility specialist, points out. Some women’s muscle can make their breasts appear more “vivid.” Not because they are higher or bulkier.

Non-wired bras are ideal for this type of more muscular and larger breasts. This is the model that could bring them the most comfort.

Spaced or sideways breasts: a gap is widening

Breasts don’t have to be glued together to bring out a nice chest. When they are sideways, it means there is some gap between them. But unlike the opposite breasts, the latter usually point forward.

sagging breasts

These are breasts that fall below the submammary fold. This form is influenced by genetic factors as well as the loss of breast fat. If this is your case, we advise you to wear push-up bras. Take the opportunity to also discover 6 things you didn’t know about your breasts!

Bell-shaped breasts: a voluptuous chest

This type of breasts is characterized by a narrow breast at the base and much larger and therefore heavier at the bottom. The only drawback, despite their beauty, would be to feel some pain at the end of the day.

Thin breasts

This type of breast is wider at the base and thinner at the end of the breasts with nipples that point downwards. If you have this type of breast, opt for a plunge bra with padding that allows you to enhance it without crushing it.
